A few days ago we had a nasty surprise.. coyotes ran away with 2 of our oldest Buff Orpington hens! We searched the property for the missing ladies until we discovered a small pile of feathers. We followed the trail of random feathers all the way to the boundary fence where it continued along side coyote tracks. We found a second pile of feathers about 10 feet from the first. The flock is now locked up in their coop to keep them safe as those coyotes will be back for more. Awesome hubby has set up the trail camera so we can keep an eye on their activity and we have the rifle ready for them too.
